How do I reset factory settings on a compac cq60-615dx notebook


From your description, restoring the factory defaults will not fix the issue. you will likely need to replace the hard drive. However, to restore the factory settings, press f10 as the system is booting to bring up the recovery partition.

I m not able to install my vista


Hey,
I had a similar problem w/my HP Pavillion.
Did you format the CDR/W's before you're burned you're restore disks?
XP will not work w/many of the newer laptops, it won't load many of the drivers.
So, you'll have to go to the Compaq support website-enter make/model/serial # etc. Then order a Vista restore CD-That's model # specific, for your particular model and it will load MotherBoard, Video and all other drivers.
Compaq shouldn't charge you except for shipping the CD's.
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html
You'll have to use you're XP CD first and make sure you do a complete fdisk, delete all partitions & then do a full and complete format of you're HD until the bios auto detects all the space on the drive-ie: if you have a 120gig HD make sure it reads 120gig then run Vista OS restore CD's and you shouldn't have any probs after that.
Good luck!

You can try pressing the F8 key at bootup to get the boot screen, and select the option " use last known good configuation" and press enter. if that dosn't work, you can do the same thing only select SAFE MODE and press enter, an that should get you into windows. then you an go t Start/accessories/systemtools/system restore, and restore th system back to a date before your problem started.

Factory.settings


Hi,

According to what you have said, you might have created the Recovery disks after purchasing the notebook.Now you are trying to restore the notebook to factory settings, but they are not working.

Even you have tried to F11 options to restore notebook using the Recovery partition of your notebook.

Let me assist you in this regard.

If the recovery disks are not booting, then we have to check if the issue is with the disks or with the CD/DVD drive itself.

To check that, you need to try to boot with any other OS CD. If the notebook is booting with other OS disks, then the issue is with the Recovery disks itself.

Even F11 option is not working, you have to make sure that D: Recovery is not removed.

For your information, if the issue is with the Recovery disks, then you can purchase the Recovery disks from Hp at very low price.

You can order them from the below link:

Under
CD-ROM order page - Recovery Discs you can order the place order for Recovery disks.
